here. also when you think back to what happened with irene, there was concern about flooding on the sound side here of the outer banks, so, you know, this area is prone to flooding. that's something that everyone's keeping a close eye on. also the winds out here are picking up. they've been right around ten to 25 miles per hour off and on. the rain off and on. but the situation out here will deteriorate as the day goes on. this area remains under a flash flood watch and a tropical storm warning. so people are taking stock of that. they're getting supplies. a lot of peel pl-- people planng to ride this storm out. we talked about some of the people who hadn't boarded up their windows. it turns out there's a mix of people there. are some people who have homes here who don't live here, so those homes have not been boarded up. some people who plan to ride the storm up. that's what we're seeing here. some who have left the area. because when you think back to what happened with irene, irene was more of a direct hit. people saw a lot of damage in this area. this time they're expecti

is the size of the loss? >> it is a major disaster in new jersey. you know i have gone through irene, october snowstorm, the blizzard of 2010. this is by par the worst thing we have gone through. we have 2.4 million people or households without power. we have over 200 state roads closed. we have -- wasn't actually a levee. it was a berm and the berm was overwhelmed by the tidal surge that came up the newark bay. same one affecting new york city. we are in the midst of rescuing hundreds of people in bergen county from their homes. also involved in rescues last night, middlesex county rescuing people from their homes. again, not with river flooding but tidal surge from the bay. so this is -- not even to mention what's happen order the jersey coastline which i think in the long run will be the part of the state that's the most devastated. you saw some of the scenes yesterday from up and down our coast. new jersey obviously this is where it came onshore. i think the state of new jersey took it in the neck worse than any other state. it is going to take as you while to dig o

combined. pop in. stand out. while irene produced massive flooding and was a $4.5 billion disaster, this storm has every possibility of being worse than that. part of the problem is because of the depth wind is stronger than many storms that move in and the storm surge is stronger as well. this is so expensive, i have heard people say is a thousand miles across. it is not, it is 2,200 mi. across and reaches all across from the canadian maritime to the midwest. clouds will increase and so will win here in chicago. if this storm comes westward, look at the band's coming into the area. this is a hybrid storm. it is not a pure hurricane. it is a winter storm in a hurricane within it. it will be much like the perfect storm was. these are worse than hurricanes because they are much larger and the wind can pile up much larger waves. national geographic a feature on how it changed the shape of the entire eastern coast line after that storm went ashore. here is how wind is blowing here in chicago. it will pick up and pile up these big waves. if you look at the radar you can see the circulat
